I love clearing out clutter. It feels so good to get rid of things and make more space. The whole feel of a room can change just by getting rid of some unneeded things. The problem is that sometimes I get into a “but what if I need it?” phase. Well, 99% of the time the answer to that question is, “you won’t!” One of the best organizational things we’ve ever done was organizing our DVDs by getting rid of all the DVD cases. What took up way too much space on shelves can now be stored in a small plastic container! It’s so simple and you’ll feel so free after you toss all those big cases into the trash!
It’s so simple…
Step #1 – buy a lot of paper CD sleeves-enough to fit all your DVDs and some extra for new ones
Step #2 – buy a plastic container/tote/box that will fit the DVDs and still allow you to close the lid
Step #3 – Put all your DVDs into the paper sleeves and place in the box standing up so you can flip through them easily
At first, I worried it would take forever to find the DVD I wanted…this is not the case. We store ours in alphabetical order and we have children’s DVDs separate from regular DVDs. It is so quick and easy to flip through the sleeves and either browse or find exactly what I’m looking for.
Take the plunge and clear out that clutter! It feels so good!
Leave a comment and let me know if you do this or if you have any other great organization tips!
*I do not use this DVD storage method for our Disney Classics that come out of the vault on BluRay and DVD. I feel it’s best to keep those in the original case so they’re complete. I don’t know why, that’s just what I do.
